History of the WCO

The Windsor Community Orchestra started up in 2004. It has been doing 3 concerts a year since then. Each concert includes 6 or 7 orchestral pieces, and also features solos and smaller groups made up of members of the orchestra. These have been as diverse as a brass duet, an accordion solo and a jazz trio.

How to join

Joining the orchestra costs only £25 per term with reductions for additional family members.

To join the orchestra, you can e-mail Elaine at wco@windsororchestra.org.uk, call on 01753 859123, or even just turn up, instrument in hand, at one of the rehearsals.
